There are 3 Ken's BBQ in Lake City, We prefer the Ken's BBQ on South 41. The BBQ is middle of the road, I do like their smoked chicken dinner. The wait staff are all great and the prices are very reasonable. The BBQ salad is also very good. They have daily specials.

Needed a BBQ fix on my drive from Tallahassee to Orlando and Google pointed me in the direction of Ken's. It's a 10 minute drive from the interstate and unfortunately I don';t think it was worth it. It wasn't terrible but it was only average. I had the pork and rib combo and neither were memorable. The pork came machine... More

It is a very homie style BBQ joint. The food is good and worth the stop. Chicken was better than the pork. Service was good and very quick. The fries were freshly cooked and very hot. Prices are reasonable.

The BBQ sandwiches here are great, but what is really tasty are their homemade sauces and salad dressings. We love their homemade blue cheese dressing! Highly recommend the BBQ pork sandwich and corn nuggets, too! Sweet tea is always refreshing and prices are reasonable.

We have been travelling past this restaurant daily for nearly two months and have marveled at the amount of cars in the parking lot. We finally gave it a shot for lunch. We were certainly not impressed and will not return. The service was great, the waitress was quite polite, and our meal was served promptly, but the chicken and... More

Saw a few of these while driving around Lake City. It's lunchtime thought we'd try it. Had pork sandwich on garlic toast and onion rings unsweetened tea. Fantastic good service too!
